her degree in Speech and Language Therapy was a great backup plan, Kate has now experienced almost every aspect of speech
radio as a newsreader, reporter, producer and presenter, working in community, local and national radio. Her documentaries have
been broadcast on Radio 1, Radio 4 and the World Service and in 2013 she was named one of the Radio Academy’s 30 Under 30.
